Hypoxia, is a condition in which the body as a whole or a region of the body is deprived of adequate oxygen supply. It is classified into 4 groups: - hypoxemic - oxygen is low - anemic - decreased ability for hemoglobin to carry oxygen. - ischemic - decreased blood flow. - histotoxic - oxygen is reaching the cells, but the cells are unable to ...Read more

How to absorb more iron after having roux-n-y gastric bypass surgery since iron is absorbed in the beginning of your small intestines, which is bypassed after roux-n-y gastric bypass, where else can it be absorbed enough to keep your iron level up
Generally: Generally the malabsorption seen after a roux-en-y lasts for about 18 months and eventually diminishes, so iron absorption will likely improve at around that time. If you simply can't get adequate iron, make sure your doctor looks at your ferritin level and not just hemoglobin level. You may indeed benefit from iron infusion or if you happen to be a premenopausal women with a heavy period, you may benefit from discussing birth control pills to help diminish the degree of bleeding that occurs each month with your menstrual cycle.See 2 more doctor answers

Low BP: There are many reasons for low BP in a cardiac patient. The heart function could be reduced, too much BP lowering medication, or fluid around the heart. There are other non-heart reasons such as an infection or problems with thyroid or adrenal gland, or also anemia. Could be as uncomplicated as dehydrated/fluid deplete status. It is good she is being evaluated in a hospital setting.
Yes--may not need to: Coronary bypass is done these days using the mammary artery (from under the collarbone) to create a great size-matched bypass into the lad (artery on the front of the heart). This almost always lasts a lifetime. Vein grafts may fail after 6 years ~ 50% of the time. It is often possible to treat these failures with stents of the original arteries (or the grafts) rather than doing another bypass.See 1 more doctor answer
Various factors: Depends upon the type, site and number of blockages and the also the heart pump function. Also depends on whether or not medical therapy has improved your symptoms and the degree of functional limitation you are experiencing. A detailed discussion with your cardiologist after your coronary angiogram is the best way to proceed.
Urinary diversion: The urinary tract diversion, rather than the bypass surgery is performed whenever the urinary bladder has been completely removed. Usually a new bladder is performed using ileum or colon, and separated from the origin, as a single loop which is attached to the abdominal wall and the skin. the ureters are connected to the new bladder, and now the flow has a different rout.
Prices: Prices would be very difficult to quote due to differences in insurance companies, hospital charges, geographic differences (that do affect costs) and other factors.

I disagree: CABG is used much less than it used to be used since drug eluting stents and angioplasty have become a mature therapy. The indications for surgery are very specific and carefully scrutinized. It's primarily used to prolong life and to relieve symptoms that are not amenable to percutaneous intervention. When used appropriately, it's "great".
Depends: Leg bypasses are typically done when someone has pain or a non-healing wound from poor circulation. If the bypass is open then it will be effective at healing wounds and improving pain. How long bypasses work is another loaded question and depends in many factors. Some include, smoking status, is vein used as a conduit or synthetic material, is the bypass to an above or belw knee artery.See 1 more doctor answer
